Hello, canton, on which version of bitaddress is the current bitcoinpaperwallet site based?? Thank you very much

Hi there,

As of today, the latest version of bitcoinpaperwallet.com is December 3, and it folds in some of the changes apparent in the very latest bitaddress.org (v2.6.5) -- however there are two significant differences:
1) For simplicity, I don't include many of extra features of bitaddress.org (brain wallets, bulk wallets, BIP38)
2) I do include a potentially stronger random number generator, provided you are using a modern enough browser. (Mostly anything but IE.) bitaddress will likely fold this RNG into their code soon, there's already a change request in place.

WOW. Now if my last question is stupid, forgive me - so what if all of us printed, moved our mouse and generated addresses OFFLINE, is there any chance that this webapp generate an identical address keypair that already exists out there? How will it countercheck the newly gen. address with an existing one?

Thank you very much and more prosperity may come your way.

Hello,

It is nearly inconceivable that any address you generated using bitcoinpaperwallet.org (or bitaddress.org) will ever collide with another address, whether generated online or offline. Each time you generate an address, it's like taking a 16-sided die and rolling it 16 times. For a duplicate address to be generated (a "collision") someone else would have to roll the exact same 16 numbers in the exact same order.

Meanwhile, the bitaddress.org random number generator is continually being improved to add more "entropy" to guarantee more and more random results since generating truly random numbers is tricky on a computer, and the authors want to circumvent any weaknesses inherent to either the web browser or the operating system.

Also on the other side of the paper too, behind the actual private key.

Keep up the good work, much appreciated.

Would it be possible to add an option to print two copies of your paper wallet at once on 1 sheet?
Since for cold storage it is best to have two separate copies of your paper wallet anyway.

Possible, but not automatic. You can print two wallets per page, either with the same keys or different keys, your choice. See "Can I print two per page" at: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/printing-and-paper-tips/

This weekend I had a couple days off for Father's day, so I finally implemented some features I've had on the back-burner for a few months. Here's what's new:

  • The background pattern ("guilloche") is algorithmically determined by the first 8 chars of the public key. This way each and every paper wallet looks a little different. I like how this reflects the significance of every public key (your wallet) being unique. Good teaching point when you're giving these away. If you don't like the pattern you get, just hit the "generate new key" button a few times, or roll your own with dice, etc.
  • By popular demand: BIP38 encrypted wallets now have a different color (blue stripe) so you can tell at a glance which wallets are encrypted and which aren't.
  • Also by popular demand: when printing a wallet, you have an option to add a denomination that shows on the front, e.g. 1 BTC, 250 mBTC, etc. Nice for gifts. You can also turn off the back side instructions and deposit notes if you prefer to have that space for writing a personal message or password hint.
  • Additional languages: Hebrew, Japanese, and Swedish for a total of 13 languages. Also, languages are dynamically rendered in HTML now instead of using huge JPG images, so the github download size will shrink considerably.
  • Minor changes to graphic design. On the whole, a bit more elegant and currency-like. After all, the more valuable these look, the less likely they are to be thrown away by the person going through your personal affairs when you die...

You can try out the beta here: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/beta/generate-wallet.html

Thanks in advance for any feedback. Contact me directly if you'd like to submit additional translations.

Nice work.

I notice you changed the pattern on the private key obfuscation panel - any particular reason?

Beware the weak hands!

As a matter of fact, yes!

* On the front side, the obfuscation is now truly random, unique for every wallet. Important for defeating someone smart enough to be doing candling and looking for a "difference pattern" with the old predictable

* On the rear edge, the obfuscation is now simply more attractive. I use a flowery guilloche pattern instead of those colored dots. It's placed so that its most dense ink areas go right over the QR codes.

Tip: Especially if you're using Firefox, you can use the "Validate" tab to scan your old wallet's private QR code with your webcam. Once scanned, there's a button to load in the address as a wallet, whereupon you can add BIP38 if you like, change the design, and print a new one.

Also, last night I updated the beta to allow you to type in your own message on the back if you don't care for the instructions. You might use this to record a hint for your BIP38 password, etc.

This note is to announce that the bitcoinpaperwallet.com generator has been updated as of June 25, 2014. Both the GitHub ZIP and the Ubuntu CD have been updated.

Images: http://imgur.com/a/a2BDz
Github: https://github.com/cantonbecker/bitcoinpaperwallet
Ubuntu CD: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/ubuntu-linux-live-bootable-cd/

In addition to the improvements mentioned last week (dynamic background "guilloche" patterns, more translations, ability to have denominations on wallet fronts, different coloration for BIP38, etc.) these last-minute features were added:

* Ability to type in your own message to be printed on the reverse

* Option for typing in your own denomination (e.g. 1337 mBTC)

What do I do if my deposited BTC (moved to paper wallet for use later on) is instantly forwarded to a differ address. I used a completely offline pc to generate and print the paper wallet and deposited .02xxxx BTC only to find minutes later on blockchain.info that my BTC was sent to a different address. Clicked on it and from there it was forwarded two more times until it reached an account with (current as of 12/22/14 22:35 cst) over $78,000 in BTC.   This makes me feel as if I have been scammed, please someone help me. I know .02xxx BYC is nothing, but after 3 months of mining it was all I had.....

I printed a couple paper wallets a couple of months ago and everything was fine.  I am trying to print a new one today and I am having the same problem as you.  The QR codes show up find on the screen, but when I print the wallet, the spaces where the qr codes should be are blank.

I am using Google Chrome v 43.0.2357.81 m if that matters.

EDIT:  I also just tried with Firefox v 25.0.1.  The qr codes still did not print.

EDIT again:  I tried with a different printer and it worked fine.  So I guess it's something in my printer settings.  I'll be checking into that later.
